STATION VIII: Not for Me (Jesus Meets the Women of Jerusalem)

from 25.00

Mixed media oilgraph on canvas with blood // 36” x 36"

This Station could just as easily have been called 'Jesus Warns the Women of Jerusalem.'
"Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me but for yourselves." In this moment no comfort could be afforded to any.  Terrible times were coming. Jerusalem would fall...and it did.
In shooting this scene, the actors were given three choices as what to speak to Jesus: Tell Him you love Him, Tell Him you thank Him, or tell Him good-bye.  

Don’t...

If there are tears
let them fall for you

The clouds of my eyes part
to see what you cannot
Oh there will be a time
when you wished that
wombs were barren trees

The world is tearing in two
because of me

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
You will become a garden of flame

Winter...winter...
and the fleeing of bare feet on jagged stone
crash upon you
the mountains
weeping to the sea

In this Station we are asked to contemplate, "What would you say to Jesus in this moment?"
